6 THE UNIVERSITY MESSAGE FROM OUR CHANCELLOR AND CEO Our nation and our world are faced with tremendous challenges challenges that sometimes can seem insurmountable. But know this: the plans of God will not be thwarted! God is doing remarkable things through those who desire to serve Him. This is why I founded Regent University to provide you with a place to sharpen your skills and prepare you to help transform the world through Christian leadership. Regent University is an academic environment where Christian leaders are taught to discern and respond to the times. And through the years we have created a university that is a leading center for thought and action. Our graduates are servant leaders who are providing godly solutions to many of the challenges we face as a society. If there were ever a time to get involved in a worthy cause, this is that time. Regent University exists for such a time as this. America and the world need Christian leadership, and you may be one of those leaders. I invite you to seize this opportunity. Be a part of what God is doing in these dramatic days. Cooperate with God and become a leader to your generation. And know that we at Regent University stand ready to assist you in fulfilling your academic and professional goals. Dr. M. G. Pat Robertson Chancellor & CEO Regent University Page 1

7 MISSION STATEMENT Preamble Regent University is an institution of higher learning that exists to bring glory to God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit. Mission Our mission is to serve as a leading center of Christian thought and action providing an excellent education from a Biblical perspective and global context in pivotal professions to equip Christian leaders to change the world. Vision To be the most influential Christian transformational university in the world. PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION Regent University is a Christ-centered institution. The Board of Trustees, as well as the faculty and staff of the university, is committed to an evangelical interpretation and application of the Christian faith. The campus community is closely identified with the present-day renewal movement, which emphasizes the gifts, fruits, and ministries of the Holy Spirit. It is expected that our students will both understand and agree to receive an education in accordance with the following articles: That the Holy Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative source of Christian doctrine and precept. That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That man was created in the image of God but as a result of sin is lost and powerless to save himself. That the only hope for man is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God, who died to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of mankind, and who rose from the dead, so that by receiving Him as Savior and Lord, man is redeemed by His blood. That Jesus Christ will personally return to earth in power and glory. That the Holy Spirit indwells those who receive Christ for the purpose of enabling them to live righteous and holy lives. That the Church is the Body of Christ and is comprised of all those who, through belief in Christ, have been spiritually regenerated by the indwelling Holy Spirit. The mission of the church is worldwide evangelization and the nurturing and making disciples of Christians. HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY Dr. M. G. Pat Robertson, founder and president of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), had an inspired vision of establishing a graduate-level institution that would train mature men and women for the challenge of representing Christ in their professions. In 1977, that vision materialized when CBN University was incorporated as a nonprofit educational institution in Virginia Beach, Virginia. In the fall of 1978, 77 students began classes in modest, rented facilities. By October 1989, CBN University had grown from a School of Communication and the Arts to seven professional schools with nearly 800 students. On January 1, 1990, in recognition of this growth, the Board of Trustees voted to change the name of CBN University to Regent University. A regent is one who represents a king in his absence. For us at Regent University, a regent is one who represents Christ, our Sovereign, in whatever sphere of life he or she may be called to serve Him. The university has grown to some 5,800 students earning associates, bachelors, masters, or doctoral degrees at our Virginia Beach Campus or online via the worldwide web. Regent University Page 2

8 STANDARD OF PERSONAL CONDUCT Regent University encourages a close and edifying relationship between faculty and students, one that will deepen the spiritual growth of each and stimulate a vigorous intellectual life in the Regent community. In order to accomplish these aims, it is imperative that Regent University faculty, staff, and students conduct themselves in a Christ-like and professional manner and maintain an exemplary and involved lifestyle. Regular church and chapel attendance and participation in the activities of the Regent community and its founding organization are encouraged for students and expected for faculty and staff. In addition, the following expectations apply: Regent also forbids the use of alcohol, illicit drugs and tobacco on campus and prohibits the abuse of these substances by the Regent community. The Apostle Paul exhorted the body of Christ that, if they truly loved their fellow man, they would set aside their personal freedom by refraining from behavior that might be a stumbling block to their weaker brother. Regent University encourages members of the Regent community to exercise their personal responsibility and, guided by Paul s admonition, appropriately set aside their personal freedom and refrain from the use of alcohol, illicit drugs and tobacco. The full substance abuse policy is printed in the Student Handbook. Student discipline: Enrolled students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the Honor Code and the Standard of Personal Conduct. Students shall be disciplined for actions that violate these policies which include, but are not limited to, academic dishonesty, theft or misuse of property, threats to the health and safety of others, abuse or intimidation, sexual misconduct, violation of housing rules or regulations or conduct deemed unlawful. The Student Discipline policy is printed in the Student Handbook. CAMPUS FACILITIES The Virginia Beach Campus is comprised of eight stately Georgian buildings. In addition, several student housing facilities with varied configurations from resident halls to apartments are on or near the main campus. The campus is a fascinating study of architecture accented with arched windows and hand-hewn brick. It is located just a few miles from the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, skirted by 28 miles of beach.

Campus Ministries encourages a Journey Up through active participation in chapels and prayer gatherings. The Journey Together involves weekly discipleship groups (LIFE Groups) as well as other ministry teams. Because Regent is a rich tapestry of more than 40 denominations and religious backgrounds, we encourage involvement in one of the many wonderful local churches. Finally, the Journey Out sees students encouraged to activate their faith in service-based learning opportunities. Spring Break offers an opportunity to serve the poor and disadvantaged on our regular mission trips. Because we are strategically located within the campus of CBN and Operation Blessing, we often enjoy worldclass speakers and musicians, who make a rich spiritual community where students and their families can grow and develop in spiritual vitality. Career Services Career Services exists to provide students and alumni with excellent services, programs, and resources, that will enhance their opportunities to choose, prepare adequately for, and enter career fields in which they can serve as global Christian leaders. Because your calling and career are intrinsically connected, we want to help you manage your career path well. Career Services offers students an abundance of resources to facilitate meaningful career development. You will find that some career services are open to all schools, while others are school-specific. Regardless, we encourage you to actively engage with the opportunities before you: Access job postings, network with alumni, improve your interview skills, receive career assessments and consultations, polish your résumé, and more. Counseling In addition to the resources that are available to students at the Psychological Services Center, Student Services has a licensed counselor on staff. Students who are working through difficult decisions or circumstances can meet with our counselor to talk through the issues in a safe and caring environment. Through a counseling relationship, students can reflect on their behavior patterns, attend to emotional concerns, develop coping strategies, and work toward healthy changes. Counseling is provided from a Christian perspective, and is offered at no cost to students. Council of Graduate Students The Council of Graduate Students (COGS) was organized for the purpose of campus-wide service, communication, professional development, social life and student representation at faculty and administrative levels.

Students approved to graduate in the fall, spring, or summer semesters are strongly encouraged to participate in commencement for the conferring of the degree. All graduates are asked to RSVP as per the instructions provided by the Registrar s Office in early spring. All students must have completed all requirements toward graduation prior to participating in commencement. However, due to the uniqueness of some programs and the fact that there is only one commencement yearly, Regent provides the opportunity for students who have not completed all requirements to participate in commencement, if they meet the following criteria: 1. The student has no more than two courses remaining for graduation and these courses must be completed in the summer. The coursework may include an internship or practicum experience, which can also be completed during the summer. 2. Theses, dissertations and portfolios must have been successfully defended or approved before the spring cutoff date (varies by school) and all that remain are final edits. Students requesting permission to participate in the commencement ceremony who have not completed all graduation requirements but who are eligible to walk under the above criteria must: 1. Receive certification from the dean of the school from which they are graduating that they are eligible to participate in commencement. The school must send certification to the Registrar s Office by March Receive final written approval from the Registrar s Office that they are eligible to participate in commencement. 3. Register and pay for coursework during summer registration. Participating in commencement exercises prior to completing all graduation requirements is a privilege and does not guarantee the student s right to graduate unless all requirements have been met. GRADUATE ACADEMIC INFORMATION AND POLICIES FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION Regent University holds that the right of expression is as necessary as the right of inquiry and that both must be preserved as essential to the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge and truth. Consequently, university members, individually and collectively, may express their views through normal student, faculty and administrative channels of communication. Students, particularly those producing theses, dissertations, portfolios and other creative works, may pursue truth within their disciplines by research, discussion and other forms of inquiry. Exercising academic freedom requires a responsibility to truth and scholarly integrity, as well as complete honesty and loyalty to the Mission Statement, Standard of Personal Conduct and the Student Honor Code (see the Student Handbook). STUDENT RECORDS CONFIDENTIALITY Regent University protects the confidentiality of the education records of current and former students. This policy is in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended. FERPA rights apply once a student is considered in attendance by the institution. Regent defines in attendance as being registered for at least one class at 12:01 a.m. on the first day of the student s first term, as determined by the official university academic calendar. At its discretion, the institution may provide directory information to include: student name, address, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student, photograph and participation in officially recognized activities. Students may withhold directory information by notifying the Registrar s Office, in writing, within two weeks of the posting of the annual fall notice that advises students of their rights. The full text of this policy, including procedures for inspecting and amending one s education records, is printed in the Student Handbook. ACCESS TO STUDENT EDUCATIONAL RECORDS BY OTHERS 1. Directory Information At the end of the fall add/drop period the Registrar s Office will send to students a notice of the students' right not to have student directory information released. Students may, at any time, request that directory information not be released by writing to the Registrar s Office. Information already published will not be affected by this request. Regent University Page 10

16 Without such written request, the university may release directory information to outside parties if considered appropriate. Students may request in writing that future releases of directory information not be made. Directory information includes: name, address, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student, photograph and participation in officially recognized activities. Only the Registrar s Office should disseminate directory information. All inquiries for such information should be forwarded to the Registrar s Office. Student Services may distribute in-school directories to students if this policy is followed. If additional information is added, the Registrar s Office must receive signed waivers from students whose names and other information will appear in the directory. Names or lists must not be released to outside parties. 2. Non-directory Information The university will maintain the confidentiality of student educational records and such non-directory information may be released only with the student s written request. However, information may be released to the following: Officials of other institutions in which students seek to enroll; Persons or organizations providing students financial aid; Accrediting agencies carrying out their accreditation function; Persons in compliance with a judicial order; Persons in an emergency in order to protect the health or safety of students or other persons; As otherwise legally required as the university deems appropriate. School officials with legitimate educational interests Regent University identifies the following as school officials, depending on their duties and only within the context of those duties: University faculty and staff, agents of the University, students employed by the University or serving on official University committees, and representatives of agencies under contract with the University, including but not limited to the CBN/Regent University Police Department. Health and counseling records may be provided to physicians and licensed psychologists of the student s choosing. Students may have access to appropriate information as designated by the dean or department head. If a breach of confidentiality occurs, appropriate formal disciplinary action will be taken up to and including dismissal from employment. 3. Parental Access The definition of student under FERPA refers to a person who either has reached the age of 18 or who is attending an institution of post-secondary education. At the post-secondary level parents have no inherent rights to inspect student records; this right is limited solely to the student. It is the University s policy to release academic or financial information to parents and/or guardians of students (whether or not the student has reached the age of 18) only upon the student s written authorization. The student may complete a Student Information Release (FERPA waiver), available in the Registrar s Office or online at to grant this authorization. VIRGINIA TIDEWATER CONSORTIUM PROGRAM Regent University is a member of the Virginia Tidewater Consortium (VTC) Exchange Program. This membership enables Regent students to enrich their programs by taking courses at another VTC institution. Only on-campus, credit courses offered by participating VTC institutions are allowed in the exchange program. Therefore, the program does not accommodate online distance education students. Contact the Registrar s Office for details. GRADUATE ACADEMIC PROGRAMS (Degrees, etc.) Regent University offers graduate education through a variety of modes as well as bachelor s degrees though the undergraduate programs in the College of Arts & Sciences (see College of Arts & Sciences Catalog). The Regent University graduate academic organization consists of: the School of Business and Leadership, the School of Communication and the Arts, the School of Divinity, the School of Education, the Robertson School of Government, the School of Law, and the School of Psychology and Counseling. Regent University Page 11

17 Regent embraces the Judeo-Christian tradition and enjoys a highly ecumenical environment. With faith as the foundation of its mission, Regent prepares leaders to make a positive impact upon American society and the world. In addition to the home campus in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the Regent School of Education offers programs in the metro Washington D.C. area as well as online via our Worldwide Campus. Graduate Degree Programs Degree programs offered by Regent University must be approved by the university s Board of Trustees. Each graduate school is administered by a dean who is responsible for the school s overall program. Following are the schools and authorized degree programs: Business and Leadership (SBL) Master of Business Administration (MBA) Master of Arts (MA) in Organizational Leadership (MOL) Master of Arts (MA) in Strategic Foresight Certificate of Graduate Studies in Leadership (CGS) Certificate of Graduate Studies in Strategic Foresight Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Organizational Leadership Doctor of Strategic Leadership (DSL) Certificate of Post-Doctoral Studies in Organizational Leadership Communication and the Arts (COM) Master of Arts (MA) Master of Arts (MA) in Journalism Master of Arts (MA) in Theatre Master of Fine Arts (MFA) Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Acting Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Communication Divinity (DIV) Master of Arts (MA) in Practical Theology Master of Theological Studies (MTS) Master of Divinity (MDiv) Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.)

18 Law (LAW) Juris Doctor (J.D.) Master of Laws (LL.M.) in American Legal Studies Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Human Rights Psychology and Counseling (SPC) Master of Arts (MA) in Counseling Master of Arts (M.A) in Human Services Counseling (non-clinical) Certificate of Advanced Counseling Studies (CACS) Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D) in Clinical Psychology Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Counselor Education & Supervision Joint Degrees To meet the growing demand for professionals who are trained in more than one field, Regent University offers joint degrees between its various graduate schools and programs. Thus, students may earn two graduate degrees with fewer total credit requirements than if the two degrees were earned separately. Joint degrees apply to master s degrees and the J.D. degree only. For reasons such as content duplication, the total credit hour requirement may be reduced up to 20% from the requirements of the two degrees if earned separately. The requirements and percentage of credit hour reduction is determined by the individual schools and programs. A joint degree will normally require a minimum of two-and-one-half to three years of full-time study (four years for the J.D. or M. Div.). Each joint degrees program requires completion of core courses, some electives and method courses, and in most cases an internship, thesis or their equivalent. The internship or thesis focuses on a topic involving interaction between both fields represented by the degrees being sought. Specific details about joint degrees programs may be obtained by contacting the Admissions Office or the dean's office of the individual schools. Guidelines 1. Ordinarily, students should seek admission to a joint degrees program before the completion of one-third of any single degree program. This should coincide with the completion of the student's Approved Degree Plan (ADP). 2. Upon admission to two schools, the student will be assigned two advisors, one from each school. The student must obtain approval from both advisors in the registration process each term. 3. In consultation with both advisors, the student is responsible for planning and executing the joint degrees, taking into account sequencing of core courses, major courses and electives in both schools. 4. The student is responsible for fulfilling the specific requirements of individual schools and colleges, such as prerequisites and residency. 5. Students must complete both degree programs before being cleared for graduation in either program. 6. Because they receive two separate degrees, joint degrees students pay two graduation fees when applying for graduation. GRADUATE FULL-TIME CLASSIFICATION To be classified as full time for enrollment certification purposes, a graduate student must satisfy one of the following conditions: 1. Be enrolled for a minimum of nine (9) credit hours (master s level), ten (10) credit hours (law), and six (6) credit hours (doctoral) per regular academic semester or six (6) credit hours during the summer session(s). This definition will be used for enrollment reporting purposes. 2. Be enrolled for at least one credit hour per semester in one of the following culminating academic experiences: dissertation, thesis, portfolio, internship, certain comprehensive or qualifying exams (varies by school) or any other equivalent. The student s advisor may be required to certify in writing to the Registrar s Office that the student is working full time on the culminating experience. With the exception of doctoral students working on dissertations, a student shall not be classified as full time for more than two semesters while working exclusively on a culminating experience except as approved by the dean of the school or college. Regent University Page 13

19 3. Be enrolled for at least one (1) credit hour in the last semester of enrollment necessary for completing the degree. It is the student s responsibility to notify the Registrar s Office in writing, via Academic Petition, at the beginning of the applicable term. 4. If program design does not allow for at least nine (9) credit hours per session, full time classification will be considered the maximum number of credit hours offered per session in that program. It is the student s responsibility to notify the Registrar s Office in writing, via Academic Petition, at the beginning of each applicable term. ACADEMIC ADVISING Schools normally assign an advisor to students to help them plan degree programs and to give career and personal guidance during their graduate program. It is the student s responsibility to meet the requirements of the degree as defined in the student s Approved Degree Plan (ADP). Advisors may assist students during the registration process and throughout the year. More information is available from the students school and in the Student Handbook. REPEATING A COURSE Students who receive a grade of F, FX, or NP in a required course must repeat and pass that course in order to graduate. Students may elect to repeat any course in order to obtain a higher grade. When a course is repeated, the last grade points and credit hours earned replace the previous grade points and credit hours in computing the GPA. However, all grade entries on the transcript remain a part of the students permanent academic record. If the course being repeated is offered under a different course number than when students first took the course, students must indicate that it is a repeat course at the time of registration. Divinity Courses Students who receive a grade of C- or below in a course of the academic Masters of Arts degree must repeat and pass that course in order to graduate. Law School Courses Students who receive a grade of F in a required course must repeat and pass the course in order to graduate. Students who receive a D- grade in a non-sequential required course must repeat the course prior to graduation. Students who receive a D- grade in a required course or courses in a sequence of courses (e.g., Contracts I, II and III) must repeat the course(s) except upon the granting of a petition showing good cause that the course or courses need not be repeated. Students may elect to repeat a course in which any other grade is received. When students repeat a course, the grade received on the repeat course will be averaged with the original grade received according to the following procedure: 1. The total grade points for all earned letter grades in the repeated courses will be divided by the total credit hours taken in calculating the average grade points to be assigned per credit hour. The average grade points per credit hour shall not exceed 2.00 (C grade). 2. The average grade points (not to exceed 2.00) will be assigned only to the final repeat credit hours. The credit hours and grade points earned for each prior taking of a course shall be deleted from the transcript. However, all grade entries on the transcript remain a permanent part of the student s academic record. Only the credit hours successfully completed for the repeat course may be used in calculating cumulative credit hours earned toward satisfying degree requirements. If the course being repeated is offered under a different course number than when students first took the course, students must indicate that it is a repeat course at the time of registration. GRADING SYSTEMS To remain in good academic standing in all graduate degree programs except for those in the School of Law, a student must maintain a 3.00 GPA. (2.50 for MDiv, MA and MA in Practical Theology; 2.00 for the J.D. and LL.M. programs) The following grading scale is the authorized grading scale for the university. [see the College of Arts & Sciences catalog for the undergraduate grading scale] A A 4.00 A B B 3.00 B Regent University Page 14

20 C C 2.00 C D D 1.00 D F 0.00 Notes: 1. This grading scale does not preclude specific courses from being graded on a pass/fail model. 2. Individual schools may choose to offer a subset of the grades listed above. AU Audit (No Credit) (Used for audit courses only) FX Failure to make up or finish an Incomplete I Incomplete IP In Progress NP No Pass (Used for pass/fail courses only) P Pass (Used for pass/fail courses only) W Withdrew WF Withdrew Failing The instructor determines all grades. The basis for evaluation and grade calculation shall be published in the course syllabus available at the first formal class meeting. Formative grade assessment may utilize systems different than the required system for final grading, as long as the system allows for equitable conversion. The GPA is obtained by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of credit hours attempted exclusive of P/NP, Audit and courses in which an Incomplete or In Progress is assigned. Courses with grades of F, FX, W, WF, NP or Audit may not be used to meet minimum credit hour requirements. Professional development courses such as an internship or practicum will be graded on a P/NP basis. Incomplete Grades Students desiring an incomplete must submit their request to the course instructor (or Academic dean) prior to the end of the term (ordinarily two weeks before the last day of class). An incomplete grade will be given in a regular course only for legitimate deficiencies due to illness, emergencies, or extraordinary reasons acceptable to the professor and/or academic dean including equipment breakdown or shortages, and not because of neglect on the student s part. To qualify for an Incomplete, the student must have completed over 75% of the course material and have a documented reason for requesting the incomplete. (75% means all assignments/exams up to and including the mid-term point, tests, and or assignments.) Students on academic probation are not eligible for an incomplete in any course. Incomplete grades require the final approval of the school dean or his or her authorized representative. A regular grade will be given by the instructor if all requirements for the course are submitted by the end of the following academic term. The instructor will submit the new grade to the Registrar s Office no later than two weeks after the beginning of the subsequent term. If all work is not submitted by the end of the term following the granting of the incomplete, a grade of FX (NP for pass/fail courses) will be posted automatically unless a Request for Extension of Incomplete has been approved and submitted to the Registrar s Office. The FX shall be counted as an F in the computation of the GPA. Any student desiring reinstatement to the course after an FX or NP has been posted must register for the course in a subsequent term and pay the full current tuition for the course.
